    1. He is a very nice gent privately too. He shot his first directorial debut here in my country and was very nice to everyone and very humble.

  2. I really like psychological thrillers.
    I saw that Sweet Tooth was on Netflix and remembered the show from your blog so I started watching it. Now bad but I'm only one episode in right now.

  6. I'm sorry, but I am just completely distracted by this Lorenzo Richelmy! He resembles my husband when he was younger, skinnier, and had a very full head of hair. What a handsome man!

    3. You need to watch his MARCO POLO series . It had just two ten episode seasons, the second much better than the first one. He lacks in charisma, though.
